How You Can Help
Ramon Lopez came to America with nothing but a 3rd-grade education. For the next 40 years, he worked tirelessly as a busboy in order to provide a better opportunity for his three children. When Ramon died of complications stemming from Covid-19, he left behind an amazing legacy of three remarkable children – each achieving the academic success of any parent’s dreams. To honor their father’s legacy, Ramon’s children have co-founded this fund with one of their former teachers, with the goal of creating academic opportunities for generations of students in need. This fund will support scholarships to graduating seniors who are first in their family to attend a two- or four-year university and who are at or below the poverty threshold.
